The New York Times bestselling author of WIRED returns with a stunning new science-fiction/technothriller.
"Richards is a fantastic new talent." --Stephen Coonts, author of Pirate Alley, a 17-time New York Times bestselling novel.
Nick Hall knows things are bad when he wakes up in a dumpster... , bloodied, with no memory, and hearing voices in his head. But things are about to get a whole lot worse. He's being pursued by a group of ruthless assassins. Hall soon discovers that he has advanced electronics implanted in his brain, giving him two incredible abilities. He can surf the web solely with his thoughts. He also has the ability to read people's minds. But who put the implants in? And why is that? And why is someone so determined to assassinate him?
As Hall tries to figure out what's going on, he realizes that there's a lot more at stake than just his life. Because his actions have the potential to either catapult civilization to new heights or bring it to its end.
Mind's Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller based on real research on thought-controlled web surfing. One that raises a slew of intriguing, if not downright terrifying, possibilities about a near-future future.

On The Cure, Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Impact, says, "Will keep you turning the pages all night long."
Who cares if you know for sure that many millions will ignore the law, and thousands will die each year because of it. Same thing with this. The danger of addiction and traffic fatalities will be gladly overlooked and accepted. Cell phones still cause numerous deaths, but nobody has the nerve and audacity to suggest we stop using them. No one spoke for several long seconds.
Unless you truly believed in something to the deepest depth of your being, as did Delamater, all men were whores in the end. There was an old joke that had always struck Delamater as defining of the human species. A man asks a woman if she would sleep with him for ten million dollars. She agrees. He then asks if she would sleep with him for a dollar. She is aghast. What kind of woman do you take me for? she asks. To that, the man responds, We have established what you are, madam. Now we’re just haggling over the price.
Would a coward or a thief remain a coward or a thief, even if his memory slate was wiped clean? Or could he somehow become courageous and noble? Could not knowing you had a history of cowardice allow you to suddenly become brave? Were bravery and altruism learned qualities or innate ones?
